Ashok Leyland will start exporting LCVs and is working on left hand drive version of its LCVs for this purpose, Nitin Seth, president of light commercial vehicles at Ashok Leyland, said. Since 80% of the world market is for left hand drive vehicles, the company is working on the LHD version of Dost LCV and the Mitr range of vehicles, Seth said. Restrictions imposed on the company by it earlier JV partner, Nissan, had limited exports only to the SAARC region, but now the company is in a position to export LCVs to a wider market, Seth said. With the company parting ways with Nissan, it will now be able to export to a larger market including the Gulf nations, Russia, Africa, Ukraine and south-east Asia, Seth said. They have a ready network in place and will soon add LCVs to the exports, he said.
